How to Boot Android in Recovery Mode

In this post, we’ll see how to boot Android in recovery mode. Let’s get started.

Method #1

  1. Shut down your Android phone.
  2. Press “Volume down” and “Power” keys simultaneously and hold them until you see words on your device’s screen.
  3. After that, press the “Volume down” button until you see “Recovery Mode.” Now, press the “Power” button.

That’s it. All done.

Note: if the buttons combination mentioned at the above second step didn’t work for your device, then give a try to that step with “Volume up” and “Power” keys.

Method #2

This method is for the rooted Android device only.


  1. Install and open the Simple Reboot app.
  2. Provide the root permission.
  3. Now, you can see a menu with these options – Power offRestart, Soft restart, Restart to recovery, Restart to bootloader, Restart to safe mode.
  4. Hit the “Restart to recovery” option.

That’s it. All done.

Method #3

You can boot Android in the recovery mode using the following command on PC (but, you need to enable USB debugging on Android and install ADB drivers on your PC for this) or Android (but, you need to install Terminal Emulator for Android app for that).

The command is:

adb reboot recovery (for PC)

reboot recovery (for Android)

In this instance, I’m doing this method on an Android phone.

  1. In the Terminal Emulator app, type su and then hit the “Enter” key in your keyboard.
  2. Now, provide the root permission for the app.
  3. Type reboot recovery and then hit the “Enter” key in the keyboard.

That’s all. All done.
